Top 10 Favorite Water Games
This classic water game is perfect for all ages. To play, one person is chosen to be "it" and closes their eyes. The other players then swim around the pool or yard while the person who is "it" tries to catch them. When someone is caught, they become the new "it".
Water Balloon Volleyball
For this water game, you will need two teams of two people each and a water balloon. The teams stand on opposite sides of a net (or line) and try to hit the water balloon over to the other team. If the water balloon breaks on your side, you get a point! The first team to reach 21 points wins the game!
Sharks and Minnows
This water game is perfect for a large group of people. To play, you need at least four people. The rest of the players line up on one side of the pool while one person is chosen to be the shark. The shark then swims to the other side of the pool and back while trying to tag as many minnows as possible. Once a minnow is tagged, they become a shark and help try to tag the other minnows. The last minnow left swimming is the winner!
Sponge Relay Race
This is a great game for kids! Divide into two teams and line up behind a bucket or pool filled with water. Each player takes a turn dipping their sponge in the water, running to the other end of the pool, and squeezing the water into another bucket. The first team to fill their bucket wins!
Drip, Drip, Drop
This is a fun game for kids of all ages. Fill a bucket with water and have each player take turns dripping water on the person in front of them. The goal is to make it to the end without getting wet!
Squirt Gun Race

This water game is perfect for all ages. To play, one person is chosen to be "it" and stands in the middle of the pool with a water hose. The other players line up on one side of the pool.
